When their mother becomes the first victim in a string of murders, devastated twin witches Hunter and Mercy Goode vow to avenge her death, but it will take more than magic to rein in the ancient mythological monsters who have infected their peaceful town.
Twins Hunter and Mercy Goode are direct descendants of the founder of their town of Goodeville. As their ancestors have done before them, it is time for them to learn what it means to be Gatekeepers– the protectors of the Gates to different underworlds, ancient portals between their world and realms where mythology rules and nightmares come to life. When their mother becomes the first victim in a string of murders, the sisters vow to avenge her death. But it will take more than magic to rein in the ancient mythological monsters who have infected their peaceful town. -- adapted from jacket

    Twins Hunter and Mercy Goode are descended from their town's founder, a Salem witch who escaped execution. Turning 16, the sisters are next in a long line of women responsible for protecting Goodeville's five gates that separate our world from those of Greek, Norse, Egyptian, Hindu, and Japanese mythology. Hunter and Mercy get a crash course on the importance—and danger—of securing the gates when their birthday ritual goes awry and something is unleashed. With their mother the first victim of the escaped fiend's killing spree, the sisters must rely on the help of a few core friends and a feline familiar to track down the murderer while fighting off mythological foes. The concept is enticing, but uneven pacing, awkward characterization and dialogue, and a confusing rotation of perspectives get in the way. Fans of the authors of the popular House of Night series will surely seek out this series opener, which might also appeal to readers who have torn through other witchy YA fantasy options. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
